This study shows that ADB’s support has been relevant and responsive to the sector development needs of developing member countries. ADB support performed reasonably well at the macro level in easing regulatory and policy constraints. However, it was less than effective in market and institutional development, sustainability of microfinance operations, and outreach to the poor.
This special evaluation study (SES) presents an independent evaluation of the implementation of the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) first three FPFs in the areas of water, regional cooperation and integration, and clean energy.
This study evaluates data and information on a specific theme, e.g., nongovernment and civil society organizations, participation, governance, gender, environment, capacity building.
This special evaluation study updates an earlier evaluation on ADB's assistance to support financial intermediation for private sector development and small and medium-sized enterprises promotion.
The special evaluation study evaluates the performance of ADB's public and private sector assistance related to the development of policy, legal and regulatory frameworks, and institutions for stock and bond markets from 1986 to 2006.
This special evaluation study aims to assess, based on the experience of ADB-supported projects, the extent to which access to microfinance has reduced the poverty of rural poor households and improved the socioeconomic status of poor women.
This special evaluation study examines how rural poor selected strategies to rise out of poverty, how various factors influenced their selection of the strategies, how sustainable the poverty exit was, and how effective poverty reduction interventions have been.
This special evaluation study aimed to determine the major causes of cost underruns and overruns of ADB projects, assess the contribution of each major factor to cost variations and recommend ways to improve the reliability of cost estimates.
